Is that David Crosby chillin' in the empty Hollywood Bowl, behind Weir in that 1967 photo?

I wonder why the reference to King Lear, unless there is a lot unwritten. He sure has some powerful dreams.<BR>I think the picture of his ancestor with the Yosemite Sam mustache was or resembled his own father.<BR>

The photo at the top of the article, with the hat and the hand, ..whoa. <BR><BR>He badly wants a seat at that living-musical-legend-that-can-still-crush-it table, but just walking up and grabbing a chair is remarkably bad form.

No one enjoys the sound of Bob's voice more than Bob.

That's what it seems like...it's not unlike when I say that MY posts count about twice as much as, say, JOTS, because I have posted twice as much as he has (of course, the algorithm could work in reverse, eh? That's what Mrs Tell always sez--the more you talk, the less it counts?).<BR><BR>From now on I will calculate the value of what anyone else posts about post 1971 by taking the ratio of posts by poster X dividing by mine times "value of content" (ie, it will always be less than unity).<BR><BR>Wait a minute...Crap, now I have to do math hereabouts?

It's at this point I could, if so inclined, make a crude joke about what happened when Bob met Neil Young. Yep, Neil and Bob. Do the math.
